Reading other threads, I just had a thought on the longtail traffic loss.
Everyone is assuming it must go SOMEWHERE, right?
What if the search volume is down? What if the 3-column view PLUS Wonder Wheel PLUS PSERP* views is meaning a substantial number of people are no longer typing their search refinements?
Obviously this is not the explanation where ranking has suffered, but could be for those who's primary metric is traffic volume
